When: Tuesday, November 15, from 7:00am to 8:25am GMT+7 (start of event at 7:25am)
Where: Room Pattaya 5, PEACH
Join us to hear more about recent trends in donor funding for family planning and sexual and reproductive health and rights (FP/SRHR) and an innovative new tool that estimates benefits of investing in FP in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
Donor funding will continue to play a critical role for access to FP and SRHR for many women and girls in LMICs over the coming decade, including as countries recover from the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has had severe impacts on health outcomes and put a heavy strain on many donor budgets, which makes advocacy for strong and continued support for FP and SRHR even more urgent.
Having a clear understanding of donor funding for SRHR across its various elements as well as its impacts at country level is critical for effective advocacy and to drive accountability efforts for maintained and increased FP and SRHR support amidst an ever-changing and challenging global geopolitical and economic context.
The event will be moderated by Yvonne Bogaarts, Advocacy Manager, Rutgers.
We will be joined by:
Elizabeth Sully, Senior Research Scientist, Guttmacher Institute
Lisa Goerlitz, Head of Brussels Office, Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevoelkerung (DSW)
Raffaela Dattler, Senior Advocacy Adviser, International Planned Parenthood Federation/Countdown 2030 Europe
